Erik Kristian Halsnes

Erik left this earth peacefully at home during the night of November 22, 2015. Erik is remembered for his compassion and empathy for others, human and creature alike, for his generous heart, for his fun loving and adventurous spirit, his great sense of humor, the pure joy he found on his skis and motocross, his love of fishing, camping, and hunting, and his deep appreciation of music. Erik’s magnanimous heart, forgiving nature, and value of human connection was a gift and a lesson to us all. We cherish and hold him forever and always, in all ways, with the greatest love in our hearts…
